For many people, today is a day off of work and school. And with the slow, steady snow this morning, I think many of us are thankful not to be driving in it! But, today is not just a day off. It’s a day to remember. Did you know that Milwaukee is one of the only cities along side of Atlanta to celebrate MLK Day annually since 1984? We use this day to remember Dr Martin Luther King Jr. and the influences he had on our country during the Civil Rights Movement, protesting racism and promoting integration and equality. Many people now celebrate this holiday by providing acts of service for their communities, promoting the arts, volunteering and of course, re-telling his famous “I have a Dream” speech.
How will you celebrate today? How will you help our nation to continue to move forward toward even more equality?
